MANILA, Philippines — Jenelyn Olsim had a stunning debut in the main roster when she submitted contender Maira Mazar in the third round of their strawweight bout in ONE: Fists of Fury III at Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Olsim finished things off by catching Mazar’s takedown attempt and slapping in a power guillotine that forced the Brazilian to tap with 41 seconds left in the fight.
